I started watching Dark Angel in South Africa in 2001,before I came to the UK, so I was really glad to be able to watch (for the second time!) series one and series two on Channel Five, and now on DVD.
This is truly one of the best TV shows ever - with the weight of someone like James Cameron behind it, you can only imagine. It has a bit of everything - love, drama, humour, action, and especially intriguing, the relationship (romantic and platonic) between Max and Logan. They have such a hard time being open with each other, and have a natural distrust of the world which is interesting to watch as they test each other.
Saying that, I must say I found Series Two somewhat disappointing. There seem to be a lot of loose ends, and since the show was cancelled, we are left hanging....... There are also many confusing aspects of Max's connection to the Snake cult which are just never clearly examined.
If you're a die-hard fan like me, you're going to buy the DVD anyway, for the pleasure of owning such an excellent show. Sadly, extra features are lacking, and you cant help but feel robbed that there is no real resolution of the story. "Freak Nation" was an excellent episode, but it left me frustrated. Unfortunately, that's never going to be solved, is it? (Unless you settle for the B-grade paperbacks, which I have done).
